High court strikes down raisin program as unconstitutional

rasin farmer ruling from SCThe Supreme Court ruled Monday that a 66-year-old program that lets the government take raisins away from farmers to help reduce supply and boost market prices is unconstitutional.

In an 8-1 ruling, the justices said forcing raisin growers to give up part of their annual crop without full payment is an illegal confiscation of private property.

The ruling is a victory for California farmers Marvin and Laura Horne, who claimed they were losing money under a 1940s-era program they call outdated and ineffective. They were fined $695,000 for trying to get around the program.

Same-sex ruling will trigger next round of fights

same sex ruling problemsA U.S. Supreme Court ruling allowing same-sex marriages in Michigan and across the nation will have sweeping ramifications for gays and lesbians, giving those who marry many rights that opposite-sex couples have, including tax benefits, hospital visitations, joint adoptions and more.

It won't be a complete victory, however.

Even if the court rules, as many expect this month, to overturn same-sex marriage bans in Michigan and three other states — and by extension in the rest of the country — it won't settle every legal question faced by same-sex couples. Much will fall to the states themselves to sort out.
